The first two children’s hospitals in Northwest Austin and Williamson County are set to begin construction in 2021.

Upcoming work on the Dell Children’s Medical Center north campus and the Texas Children’s Hospital will lay the groundwork for the pediatric hospitals to begin services in 2022 and 2024, respectively.

Both medical centers are located in far Northwest Austin near the city’s border with Cedar Park.

According to Ascension Texas, a medical office park located adjacent to its upcoming Dell Children’s campus at the intersection of Avery Ranch Boulevard and 183A Toll will open mid-April 2021, around the same time work on hospital breaks ground. Construction on the medical office park kicked off in March 2020. The new Dell Children’s campus will be a Level III pediatric trauma center when it opens in November 2022.

Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2024, the 360,000-square-foot Texas Children’s facility will ultimately deliver 48 beds dedicated to an array of pediatric health services.

Construction is planned to start in spring 2021 on the hospital, which will be located at the northeast intersection of RM 620 and Lake Creek Parkway.


27 Eleven

Construction is underway at the former site of Chase Bank on eastbound West Anderson Lane. The five-story apartment building will ultimately deliver 320 units with a parking garage, courtyards, a pool, a fitness center and other amenities. According to the website of architecture firm Davies Collaborative, 27 Eleven is part of a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development program to provide housing options to moderate-income families, the elderly and the handicapped.
